I am looking to try my hand at brewing a beer and want to find a good place to buy some malt extracts. I want to keep it very simple for my first one and get a liquid malt extract. Any recommendations for a place to buy from?

If you have a local Home Brew store, buy a kit from them. It usually comes with everything you will need.

I was going to say dmemart.com was a good place for DME. I bought 6 3lb bags for $65 a few weeks ago with free shipping and delivery in 2 days. The guy running it was real nice when a bag ripped in transit and offered to replace the pound that spilled out. It looks like the prices just increased 7 dollars to $72 for 6 bags which kind of sucks.

I think we have a better deal on DME than DMEmart.

Well, it's $64 for 18lbs, plus $8 for shipping. That's $72, which is the same as DME MArt assuming they still have free shipping.

However if it's $8 for shipping any order, buying multiples at once would be cheaper.

Do you allow mixing and matching? Or does all 18 lbs (or 30 lbs) need to be the same type of DME?

DMEmart 18 pounds DME= $71.94

www.austinhomebrew.com 18 pounds DME= $63.99

and only $7.99 flat rate shipping. So if you want more items than DME you don't pay any additional shipping than $7.99

Many people are fooled by the free shipping offer. It doesn't make it a better deal.
